A lifeguard stand in Ocean City, Md., reminds beachgoers of the threat of Hurricane Irene, which strengthened to a Category 3 storm over the Bahamas Wednesday, Aug. 24, 2011. Officials said Irene could cause flooding, power outages or worse as far north as Maine, even if the eye of the storm stays offshore. Hurricane-force winds were expected 50 miles from the center of the storm. (AP Photo/The Daily Times, Laura Emmons)  NO SALES
